Announcing Secure Share File Exchange Service
April 2, 2009 :: ISC Information Security
Information Systems and Computing (ISC) is pleased to announce Secure Share, a new file exchange service that is now available to Penn faculty and staff. ISC developed this secure, web-based application in response to the increasing need to securely exchange documents that contain sensitive information. Secure Share is another component of Penn's security strategy, providing a campus-wide mechanism to ensure the safety and privacy of University data. Though there should be a very limited need to exchange sensitive or confidential information electronically, when members of the Penn community are required to do so, Secure Share provides a safe and easy-to-use mechanism.
Users may upload and download files via Secure Share and the application ensures that files reach only the intended recipients. Files are encrypted when they are uploaded, downloaded, and while being stored, and e-mail notifications are sent to designated recipients when files are available for retrieval.
Secure Share is available at https://medley.isc-seo.upenn.edu/secureShare/jsp/fast.do after authentication with a PennKey and PennKey password. For more about Secure Share, including information on sending and receiving files, please visit the Secure Share web site at http://www.upenn.edu/computing/security/secure-share/.
